Game One


The first 1950 Mississippi-Ohio Valley League All-Star Game was played at West Frankfort's Memorial Stadium on July 13, 1950.

Two All-Star teams, selected by the Valley League managers and sportwriters, knocked in a total of 20 runs on 23 hits. Hal Loughery of Paducah put the Southerners ahead in the first with a two-run homer. I've been unable to find any other details for this game.

I've been unable to locate a box score for this game, or even a list of players:

NORTH

SOUTH
Hal Loughery (PAD/NA)  - 2 run home run

Notes, Issues, Sources, and Mysteries

  • Based on the perfunctory game account in The Sporting News of July 26, 1950. The July 5 issue of TSN noted that two games were planned, and some other details, including that 16 players would be selected for each squad.
  • It's not clear who managed either team for this contest.
  • A beauty contest was scheduled to be held in conjunction with the 1950 games, but I've not found the results.
  • No MVP or similar award seems to have been awarded for this game.

Game Two


The second 1950 Mississippi-Ohio Valley League All-Star Game was played at Mattoon Baseball Park on July 14, 1950.

The same two All-Star teams played a less explosive game, with the South winning again; this game had 14 hits. Gene Pisarski of Centralia was the winning pitcher on the basis of a three-inning scoreless stint to end the game; Ed Wilson of Paris took the Northern loss.

I've been unable to locate a box score for this game, or even a list of players:

NORTH
Ed Wilson (PAR/NA)     - losing pitcher

SOUTH
Gene Pisarski (CEN/NA) - winning pitcher; pitched innings 7 through 9

Notes, Issues, Sources, and Mysteries

  • Based on the same perfunctory game report in The Sporting New for July 26, 1950.
  • I have no idea who managed the teams for this game, either.
  • The 1951 TSN Guide reports an All-Star Game attendance of 1,807, which is more likely for one game than both.
  • No MVP or similar award seems to have been awarded for this game.
